Closures, Fines Follow Oregon Dispensary Inspections

The Oregon Health Authority has levied significant fines on non-compliant dispensaries and has proposed revoking the license of one establishment. At least nine other non-licensed dispensaries have also been ordered to close.

The moves come in the wake of inspections that led to closures of two licensed dispensaries in August. The department has overseen regulation of dispensaries in the state since March.

Portland Compassionate Caregivers will be allowed to reopen after an inspection now that its owner paid $6,500 in fines. The dispensary will also be subject to six months of enhanced oversight.

A second Portland establishment, Marijuana Dispensaries, has been notified that its license is under threat of revocation. It has also been levied civil penalties totaling almost $30,000.

The nine unlicensed businesses are subject to penalties of $500 per day of illegal operation.

    Really? Many dispensaries had serious inventory tracking inadequacies. That is exactly what you do if you were trying to sell illegally- not keep track of inventory.

    If they want to sell out in the open, they need to follow the rules. These are easy rules to follow and these people are grossing 10-20k per month.
